The Common Good Initiatives are items we feel strongly about changing for the better.
Our first initiative of 2017 is to create the American Museum of Women’s History.
Help create the American Museum of Women’s History!
The Common Good is proud to announce this new initiative to support the American Museum of Women’s History in Washington, D.C. It’s a long overdue dream to establish a bipartisan and national American Museum of Women’s History in Washington, DC, dedicated to showing the full scope of the history of women in America. A Congressional Commission has recommended to Congress and the President that a national museum of women’s history be built on the Washington Mall as part of the Smithsonian.
This new museum would tell the stories, celebrate the accomplishments, and illuminate American women’s history in ways that will inspire and inform people of all ages and all walks of life. But it will still take Congressional action to make the museum a reality. Thanks to the leadership of Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and many other dedicated women, there is hope that the museum will move forward given the Commission’s strong recommendation.
